COVID-19 - Update 24 March 2020

Written on 24 March 2020

The following email was sent to members on 24/03/2020 from the Commodore, updating the club's position with regard to the COVID-19 virus:                                                                  


Following the Prime Ministers statement to the nation last night I have taken the following decisions:


  • The club house and grounds will now be closed to members.
  • Water at the club house although fixed will remain off.
  • The club will be open online until we can re-open the facilities

What does that mean?

We have a great sailing community and we will maintain it. We will do so by organising online training and social events using online tools which may include:


  • Learn how to sail and race
  • Learn to be a race officer
  • Learn first aid theory
  • Learn Power Boat theory
  • Competition to design a Diamond Jubilee celebration polo shirt


This will all be new to the committee, so please be patient and volunteer if you have an idea and the skills to help make it work.


The club is open, we are are just adjusting the way we work until normality can return. In the meantime we will support each other and improve our skills and knowledge online.


Stay safe and stay at home
